I put this under general because I have been searching for several days through diffrent posts and I want everyone to see this. I'm looking for the perfect white cake. I have looked in recipes and tried the search feature but don't come up with much, so now I'm turning to you. I have tried three white cake recipes in three days. icon_cry.gif So now I want to know what you use. What is your favorite? Do you use a doctored up mix or start from scartch... bring out your recipes and help a girl out! Thanks so much! thumbs_up.gif

Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe and I add 2 tbls. merinque powder per mix. I always get a moist "fluffy" cake that is very easy to work with.

I have only used DH for white cake and I add a bit of meringue powder (about 1 tsp.) and 1 t. vanilla.

Honestly, I can't stand white cake--it is generally tastless to me, so I usually either try and get the client to go for a butter cake or a really strong flavored filling so the cake tastes OK. For the most part--the butter cake wins.

If your wanting to bake a cake from scratch, I just recently tried making the white cake II recipe that I got from the recipes of this site. My husband and I loved it! We thought it tasted just like our wedding cake which we loved! icon_smile.gif good luck icon_smile.gif

I posted a white cake recipe on this site (perhaps the one you tried, newbiecakemaker??), called Classic White Cake II. It's one I got from a recipe swap forum I go on.... It turned out great for me, so moist, fluffy and delicious.

I'm so glad you liked it! I feel like all I do is ask questions and never have anything to give back to the site, so it's nice to be able to have something to share, lol.
